My Research Interests

FDOM analyses regarding component analyses, role in the environment and related physical parameters. Research in submarine groundwater discharge (SGD), subterrain estuaries (STE) and the impact on coastal systems. In general, research in physical oceanography and handling with sensor systems and platforms.

My Objectives in CoastCarb

Analyzes of CDOM/FDOM components with PARAFAC and their pathway from coast to ocean. Understanding of the role and changes of these along the track from coast to ocean and maybe in sediment cores. Furthermore, coherences regarding microbial activity and local phytoplankton conditions.
